A little about Team Bravo Raiders....
Cindy's Baking Angels is honored to be able to support Marine Sean Haggarty's fellow brethren during their deployment in Australia.
Kristine Haggarty, Sean's mother and an equipment specialist with our U.S. Air Force, shares a little about her son and his 1/1 Weapons Platoon Bravo Company.
"My son, Sean T Haggarty, joined the Marines in October 2013. He graduated Boot Camp on 1/17/2014. He continued on to ITB training and became an 0351 Assaultman. He loved being a Marine. He deployed to Okinawa for his Jungle Warfare training and Mount Fugi for his Cold Weather training with the rest of his Weapons Platoon. They formed a tight brotherhood."

The Story Behind Cindy's Baking Angels....
Five years ago, following my retirement from middle school teaching, I set out to find an outreach program that would give me a sense of accomplishment.
A friend led me to Bakinggals.com, an organization which supports our deployed Troops. I became a team leader and now five years later with nearly 300 Angels in our network, "Goodie Boxes" are shipped monthly to our deployed Troops by our Angels.
Our "Goodie Boxes" are as diversified as our Angels. Baked goods, comfort items our Troops need, plus some fun and creative items are sent lovingly each and every month.
We are always seeking Troop referrals and welcome Angels to our network. Scroll down and see how you can become an Angel or Refer a Troop for a future team!
Thank you for visiting and please share with friends and help our Mission to grow!
Cindy's Baking Angels builds its Angel teams monthly, in affiliation with Bakinggals.com.
"Baking GALS (GALS stands for Give A Little Support) is a group of volunteer bakers from around the country who bake and ship homemade goodies to our heroic military men and women who are currently deployed in a war zone. Our goal is to show our support and send a little bit of home to remind them that we appreciate all that they do for our freedom." Bakinggals.com
Each month I sponsor a different Military recipient(s). Recipients are often referred to me by family members, friends, and by our military recipients themselves. Any deployed Military Troop is eligible who is in a war zone or aboard an MEU. Special provisions may be made to others. Please inquire. To refer a special Troop, please see Military Referrals for more information. Our services are free of charge to all Troops.
Once Cindy's Baking Angels selects a recipient(s), information is published on Bakinggals.com. Team sign-up can only be completed through Bakinggals.com and prospective members must be registered for their site.
Team building begins the 24th of the month and shipping is from the 1st - 13th of the next month. Team size is limited to 20 members. Baking is not a requirement. Often members send toiletries and other comfort items to help make our Soldiers' lives a little easier. Our Angels ship independently to the deployed Troop(s).
Once team sign-up is complete, I provide a detailed Team Newsletter with tips for shipping, baking, and other tricks I've learned that will be of help to newbies as well as veterans. I support my team unconditionally and any questions or comments are welcomed.
If you're seeking a communicative and supportive group, then Cindy's Baking Angels is the right match for you. Come and join us!
